investigation? flawed investigation or not, would this not be something that barack obama would want to know as fast as possible. >> thank you both for now. i'll turn now to somebody who will know probably a few answers to these questions. attorney general eric holder is also caught in the cross-fire on this scandal, facing questions about what he knew and why he didn't inform the president and congress sooner. michael mukazy was a former attorney general and joins me now. welcome. >> good to see you again. before we go down this road i want to observe the day by thanking the people in the military, veterans and their families. >> very much so. >> who served this country and make discussions like this and debates like we have been having the last couple weeks possible. >> i totally endorse that. but what do you make of this scandal? because it seems to get more ridiculous in some ways and yet possibly more serious the more we hear about it. >> well, it has as you've pointed out elements of absurdity to it, elements that as we talked about before would be rejected if they were proffered as pa
.5% of the vote. you can make all kinds of criticisms of mitt romney, but barack obama is not exactly the second coming of franklin dell nor roosevelt either. he is a candidate that doesn't say thank you to people who vote for him. the president has built a stronger coalition, and the republican coalition has been in trouble for a long, long time. republicans look at elections like 2010 and 1994 where a third of the election for ate is over one state. and then they are surprised where they don't win when 16% of the election for ate is over age 65. >> what about the argument you will hear, which is romney was not a consistent conservative. had he been a consistent conservative throughout his political career and had had not flip-flopped to conservatism recently, we would have run our test with a solid conservative candidate, and you can't make the argument against conservative republicanism if romney was the standard bearer of that, because he was such a false standard bearer. >> i voted for mitt romney, and i like moderate mitt from massachusetts, and i am perhaps the last person with something
